The federal government’s proposed national energy guarantee will deter investments in large renewable energy projects if the emission reductions target that the government prefers is not changed. This is according to modelling by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, and comes as Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg and his state counterparts meet to discuss the NEG on 24 November. South Australia has indicated it will reject the NEG as it is currently proposed, while Queensland Energy Minister Mark Bailey says he will not agree to an NEG that does not meet the needs of his state.
